Vote on Farm Bill Could Be Next Week

Posted: Updated:

Members of the House and Senate Farm Bill Conference Committee maybe one step closer to reaching an agreement on the federal farm bill.

According to North Dakota Senator John Hoeven who serves on that conference committee, he says farmers and ranchers could see a vote as early as next week.

While there are some issues concerning the bill, Hoeven hopes to reach an agreement in both the House and the Senate.

"If we can't get people to sign off on the report now with the compromises we've put forward, just make them all vote and get something to the House floor starting next week.  The key is we got to win that vote.  We got to have something we can get enough republican and democratic votes to pass the bill," says North Dakota Senator John Hoeven. 

Just yards from the finish line, farm bill negotiators are struggling with two issues, dairy and payment limits.
